Episode 17: New Year, Old Bars | Kelly's Olympian and Nob Hill Bar & Grill (Jan. 29, 2020)

Once an infamous downtown dive, Kelly's is now an affable motorcycle themed tavern and live music venue. 

Buoyed by a lifestyle-enhancing new sponsor, we embarked on our first HBTG visits of 2020!

First, a visit to Portland’s third-oldest bar — a former downtown dive “men’s resort” turned vintage motorcycle joint, Kelly’s Olympian (09:54).

Next, we happily marooned ourselves on an island of “Old Portland” goodness amidst a sea of rampant redevelopment at NW 23rd's Nob Hill Bar & Grill (38:54) where Nate ascended into cheeseburger heaven and Alfredo re-discovered a bathroom just short of perfection. 

New year, same old beautiful bullshit... History by the Glass rolls on!

NW gem Nob Hill Bar & Grill now boasts HBTG's top-ranked burger -- 9.5/10!!
